WE BELIEVE

We believe there is but one living and true God.  Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit.


We believe that the Son, the very and eternal God, was born of a virgin, suffered, was crucified, dead, and buried, to reconcile the Father to us, and to make atonement, not only for our actual guilt, but also for original sin.


We believe that Christ did truly rise again from the dead, and took again His body and ascended into heaven and there sits until He shall return to judge all men at the last day.


We believe the Holy Spirit, proceeding from the Father and Son, is of one substance, majesty and glory with the Father and the Son, very and eternal God.


We believe in the inspiration of the Holy Scriptures, known as the Bible, composed of 66 books, the Old and New Testaments.  We believe the Bible is the Word of God, the full and complete revelation of the plan and history of redemption.


We believe that eternal life with God in heaven is a portion of the reward of the finally righteous; and unending torture in hell are the wages of the persistently wicked.


We believe that Jesus Christ shed His blood for the remission of sins that are past, for the regeneration of penitent sinners, and for salvation from sin and from sinning.


We believe, teach, and firmly maintain the scriptural doctrine of justification by faith alone.


We believe that Jesus Christ shed His blood for the complete cleansing of the justified believer from all indwelling sin and its pollution, subsequent to regeneration.


We believe in sanctification.  While sanctification starts in regeneration and finishes in glorification , we believe that includes a definite, instantaneous work of grace achieved by grace after regeneration.  Sanctification delivers from the power and dominion of sin.  It is followed by a life-long growth and knowledge of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.


We believe that the Pentecostal baptism of the Holy Spirit and fire is obtainable by a definite act of faith on the part of the fully cleansed believer, and that the initial evidence is speaking in other tongues as the Spirit gives utterance.


We believe in divine healing.


We believe in the imminent, personal, pre-millennial second coming of our Lord Jesus Christ, and love and wait for His appearing.


We believe it is the responsibility of every believer to dedicate his life to carrying out the work of the Great Commission.
